When I try to log in as administrator it says: "Wrong password for Administrator". How do I get into configuration mode or reset the administrator password? 

To enter configuration mode, you need to log in as administrator using the password you chose the first time you ran the Pocket client. You can view or change the Administrator password by editing a configuration file on the Pocket PC. Use Notepad to open \Program Files\PocketSCADA\PocketSCADA.exe.config. The administrator password will be shown on the following line after "value=". You may change this if desired.

- <configuration>
   - <appSettings>
         <add key="AdminPassword" value="citect" />

You can also view this file in Pocket Internet Explorer by entering the address: \Program Files\PocketSCADA\PocketSCADA.EXE.Config
